"We are born at a given moment, in a given place, and like vintage years of wine, we have the qualities of the year and the season of which we are born. Astrology does not lay claim to anything more." - Carl Gustav Jung

Standing Firm At The Taurus Full Moon

   Today's Full Moon is exact at 5:23 pm EST at 15 degrees of the Fixed Earth sign Taurus and opposing the Sun at 15 Scorpio. This Earth/Water polarity speaks to practical and emotional needs. These are the money signs, mine/Taurus and yours and mine/Scorpio. Look for news of banking and financing. Try not to go overboard on any expenditures with both Lights squaring off with giant Jupiter, the planet of excess when negatively challenged.

   The issue may be feeling very extravagant or self-indulgent; either emotional connection to your budget can be very debilitating. Add Venus still sitting very close to the Sun in Scorpio and one can also be dealing with hidden motives or a sense of entitlement... watch out! This would be a good time to come clean with your real motivations and concerns, especially in key partnerships. You may think your partner can read your mind, but with the Full Moon in Taurus, that's not likely.

   There are several supportive aspects for healing and understanding today that benefit from interactions with both the Sun and Moon. The Sun sextiles Pluto (power and transformation), then the Moon sextiles Chiron for healing wounds and finally Chiron sextiles Pluto, completing the circuit as an opportunity for improving any situation you realize needs healing or forgiveness. Staying true to your values doesn't mean being unyielding. Letting go of past hurts can in fact liberate and make one feel whole!

   From Lynda Hill, we learn that the Sabian Symbol for the Full Moon at 15 degrees of Taurus is "A Man With A Silk Hat, Muffled Against The Cold, Braves A Storm". Keywords here have to do with hardship and discomfort yet a sense of optimism and an attitude of confidence for the future. It is time to forge ahead knowing life will get better in the future.

  Remember, keep your head in the stars and your feet on the ground, until next time~
